North West Is Just As Important As Blue Ivy, Everybody
North West is just as important as Blue Ivy, everybody. He, too will be born on his own hospital floor. Because when your parents are Kanye West and Kim Kardashian – your roughly eight pound infant’s body needs space. Twenty thousand square feet of space. Obviously Kim Kardashian will rent out an entire hospital floor for the birth of her child.
I don’t know if their baby is going to weigh roughly eight pounds. I also don’t know if his name is actually going to be North – this is all speculation. But the newest speculation is that they, too will be renting out an entire floor of a hospital in preparation for the birth of their first child. From the Daily Star:
Kim’s been reading about how monumental the first few moments of a baby’s life are and wants her child’s entry to the world to be idyllic.
They’ve booked an entire floor at their chosen hospital and her room will be totally sound-proofed before the delivery.
She wants all outside influences and noise of traffic muted.
Kim’s read that mood lighting and atmosphere are important, so she plans to reflect the sounds of nature with a trickling water and soothing wind CD.
Kim will also have dimmed blue, green and purple lighting to set a mellow ambience[sic].
Although I don’t really understand the necessity of having a whole floor to yourself – everything else sounds really lovely. I wish I could have had some control over my surroundings after my baby was born. Satan himself designed my hospital room. I was sharing with another woman so my husband couldn’t stay with me. I was in the tiny half of the room nearest the bathroom and the curtain that gave me some privacy actually only gave about two feet of walking space around the bed. There was no TV in the room – just a giant clock on the wall facing my bed. “Dimmed blue, green and purple lighting” would have been a welcome break from the flickering fluorescent bulb over my bed. And the soothing sounds of “trickling water” were nowhere to be found. There were the sounds of cackling nurses at the nurse’s station that was right outside my door. That was lovely.
If I had all the money in the world – I’d probably do the same thing. Why not have a totally controlled, relaxing environment for the birth of your child? My recovery in the hospital sucked because I was so damn uncomfortable. For that reason, I can’t fault someone who has the money to spend for spending it to ensure their delivery is as beautiful, private and stress-free as possible.
